Cancer, its Complications, and the Head and Neck

  • Stephen T. Sonis
Part of the Developments in Oncology book series (DION, volume 36)


Few diseases are as complex in their biology, physiology, pathology, or management as cancer [1, 2]. In addition, the disease concurrently has extensive psychological impact on patients. Consequently, the diagnosis and management of malignant disease requires an understanding not only of the process, but also of its ramifications. Because of its complexity, treatment of cancer is usually best accomplished by a team of individuals working for the patient.
